Kimochousf - James Chou (Not the judge. North Bay'ers should get that)

Moved to the Bay Area from Hawaii 6 years ago, just now getting back into shooting again. Living in Novato.

If I'm not working, it's time for shooting, golf or fishing.

I fall in the noob category but learn fast and hope to have a lot to contribute. I have 20 years in the auto industry and can provide information and advice by PM as well as make referrals from my network.

Thank you Calguns for providing such an important and valuable resource.

Seeing a few Marin people piping in. Glad to see you on board, it's not always regarded that many RKBA people are around Marin, but more than most think.

Hi folks,

I'm Paul from Pleasanton. I've been lurking around here for a few days and decided to post. Born in SF, raised in Alabama, grew up shooting and hunting. Went in the military and worked in the Armory as a Line Coach on Range Days.

Currently, I'm pricing out a Marlin 795 and accessories so I can get my two daughters into the sport. I live about 10 mins from the Livermore-Pleasanton Gun&Rod Club, so I'm expecting to spend quite a lot of time there once I pull the trigger on the purchase. Look forward to seeing a few of you around.

Hey Everyone,

I am from Las Vegas and I now live in Santa Cruz. I moved here in 2011 after meeting my wife. I am a certified NRA LE Firearms Instructor. I am former law enforcement, and I now work in corporate security. I am looking for places to train, more than just shooting in a lane, (would like to be able to draw from the holster). I enjoy training and teaching others. I look forward to meeting others like minded in the area.

Katelynn (or Katemonster).

Moved to the San Jose / South Bay area over a year ago. Relatively new shooter, though I have an extensive non-firearm combat background. I'm usually at Reeds or Sunnyvale Rod & Gun Club on the weekends.

OceanDreamer- Brian from El Sobrante, CA.

Do most of my shooting at Richmond Rod & Gun or Bullseye in Marin.

New to Calguns, but not guns in general. Grew up with loaded guns everywhere in my house (Dad was a CHP Officer). At my wifes request I sold my handguns 20 years ago when our first kid was born

Now that they are all in their late teens and my oldest will be 21 in a month, I have started buying handguns again, and my wife surprised me last week by telling me she wants to learn to shoot . Always kept my shotguns (20gauge)

Also an avid Pier/Shore fisherman and I sit on the board of directors for Pier Fishing IN California and United Pier & Shore Anglers.

Alex - Saratoga, CA

Born in Soviet Union (Minsk, now in Belarus). Immigrated with my parents when I was a teenager (several years after fall of iron curtain). Family all nerds (mathematicians, programmers, etc...), lived in Cupertino, San Jose, and Mountain View. Recently bought a place in Saratoga, where I live with my girlfriend and a 10-month old border/collie corgi mix.

SCU Alumni (another?) BS 2006, MS 2009. Currently a software engineer at a company you probably heard of.

I was always supportive of second amendment: grandfather was a decorated World War II veteran on Eastern Front -- so I knew that firearms are just that, tools -- but, most importantly, my education taught me that you can't count from one to ten without skipping two. However, I haven't exercised it until recently -- when I finally had enough time to get into target shooting.

I currently have a Kimber 1911, M1A loaded, Rem 700, and a PWS Mk. 116 (bullet button, gas-piston, .223, 16" bbl). I typically shoot at either TargetMaster's, Reed's, Los Altos R&G, or (my favourite) Sunnyvale R&G.

I'd like to do competitive shooting (currently thinking of which sport to do) and once the-kitchen-remodel-that-never-ends is done (i.e., once I have a high-cap refrigerator and a good range/cooktop), perhaps hunting.

James - Cupertino

22lr pistol, .303 rifle, 12g shotgun, starting on a 5.56/.223 custom build

edit: the pistol and the being-built 5.56 are going to be my 'range guns', particularly the 22lr. The shotgun's excellent for clays. The .303, both due to ammo costs and the uncomfortable kick, shall stay as a 'hunting only' kind of gun.

Currently working as a buyer & CNC router programmer / operator at a semiconductor cleaning equipment company. CNC router's currently limited to plastics with occasional simple aluminum parts, hoping to expand its capabilities in the future. Boss is talking with me about getting me trained on Solidworks to be a capable modeler for parts (he's getting tired of the contract engineer we've been working with). Previously worked as a video game visual fx artist.

Hobbies include (classic) car work (see sig).

Fred - Mountain View.

I lived in England until around 2010, then I moved to Ireland for few years. I ended up here in October, and loving it so far - quickly caught the gun bug from coworkers! Handguns and rimfire rifles so far, trying to find a Sig 556 Classic.

Originally from Humboldt County, I've lived in Oakland since '99. Bought my first gun this March and I'm hooked. I have five now and I'm about to start my first AR build.
